“Why wasn’t Rod Blagojevich, Governor of IL, prosecuted before Tony Rezko, a businessman?”…Citizen Wells

“Why was Tony Rezko’s sentencing delayed?”…Citizen Wells


“I believe I’m more pristine on Rezko than him.”…Rod Blagojevich

“Blagojevich Files New Argument in Appeal

Rod Blagojevich’s lawyers have submitted an additional argument on why an appeals court in Chicago should overturn the convictions of the imprisoned former governor.”

“Defense lawyers say that ruling also indicated the solicitation of contributions was corruption only when a politician gave a clear promise to take some official action in exchange for the donation. They say Blagojevich never made such promises.

Prosecutors are expected to file a response in the coming days.”

    A New Scandal? White House Defies Congressional Subpoena, Keeps Top Obama Aide from Testifying

    The Obama Administration is defying a congressional subpoena and keeping a top Obama aide from testifying, claiming he’s IMMUNE from having to answer to Congress!

  4. CHILLING Video: Famous Liberal Law Professor Warns of Obama Dictatorship; Urges Congress to Act
    July 16, 2014 By Matthew Burke

    Respected liberal George Washington University Law School Professor, Jonathan Turley, speaking regarding the House GOP’s lawsuit against Obama for unconstitutionally using executive orders, issued a chilling statement on Wednesday, saying that “this could be a historic moment.”
    Professor Turley said that the current Congress is losing its powers “to a kind of uber presidency.”

  5. Interesting that Prof Turley mentioned nullification of laws under a future Presidency

  6. Bob Strauss……..
    When people refuse to respond to subpoenas it is time to send the sheriff of that county to FETCH them,after which that person will have a contempt of Congress citation with a mandatory 30 day slammer vacation.

  7. Constitutional Scholar Warns Obama is Threatening to Remake Gov’t

    A liberal constitutional scholar today warned a panel of lawmakers that the president is threatening to remake the government and said that Congress must act against his executive overreach.

    Jonathan Turley was on “The Kelly File” tonight to explain what he said.

    Turley told Megyn Kelly that a new model of government is emerging, and it’s the one that the framers told us to reject.

    Murrieta Mutiny: Border Patrol Will Not Obey Unlawful Orders From Homeland Security and White House


    A recorded telephone interview with a highly credible and prominent Murrieta community leader on Sunday July 14, 2014 when it was revealed that frontline U.S. Border Patrol agents threatened to stand down if the Department of Homeland Security executed a plan to use force upon protestors [sic] if they impeded buses transporting undocumented immigrants into the Murrieta processing facility.

  9. Jonah……..
    You may or may not know that everything Soetoro is doing today was also done by Adolph Hitler. Finally he was handed the control of Germany and the existing government signed themselves into oblivion. Not ONE person was able to see through Hitler’s INSANITY. He eventually began to believe that he was a GOD. I see the same twisted behavior coming from Soetoro. I seriously believe that he is becoming more insane as each day passes. Now I see another mental cripple who yesterday said that the border IS SECURE. This was the statement of Harry Reid. There have been a couple of others in Congress who are also questioning Reid’s mental condition,and fitness to even hold public office. I believe that both Harry Reid and Soetoro should be placed under very close observation of psychiatrists. I think that Soetoro now thinks he is a GOD as well.

  10. I can remember the TWO HOUR long radio RAVINGS of Adolph Hitler. I was then a whisker over 6 years old. I can remember Hitler’s alleged speeches as if it was just yesterday. As I remember he expressed himself in a way that as I became older,I realised was borderline LUNACY. My father would listen to the broadcast then he would turn to my mother and say “WAR is coming”. This was in the late 1930s. Turley is absolutely right! What Soetoro is doing now is EXACTLY what Hitler done in the 1930s……..and if he is allowed to continue we will soon see a “night of the long knives” right here in America. “Ja vee is der supermen”………..but wait a minute, if they were SUPERMEN how come they aren’t around anymore? Do you suspect that the allies,and the US together might have had something to do with the SUPERMEN surrendering by the THOUSANDS at a time when the chips were down? Supermen don’t surrender to anybody. The war crimes tribunals at NURENBERG went from day to day and each day another DOZEN of the Supermen came to a sudden stop at the end of a rope. In Italy the the PEOPLE THEMSELVES ended the reign of Mussolini.

  11. For those who are unsure about the legality of the foreign INVADERS,being forcefully rammed down the throats of many American cities. You have the legal right to REFUSE to assist anyone who is NOT A CITIZEN of our country……particularly if that person,or persons are in the country illegally. Many of the people from Latin America identify with the Catholic faith. So I say to them CONTACT A CATHOLIC CHURCH,and ask for it’s assistance (money,food, and a place to live). Let the Catholic charities help support the illegals.

  12. Many people are totally unaware of the invasion of immigrants which has continued sinc the first colonies were established. They came in dreibbles at first then as time passed they arrived in DROVES, and they came from virtually every country in Europe, by the millions. My own grandmother,grandfather,my father,and my aunt were among the immigrants in 1910. Fortunately my grandfather was a skilled tradesmen,and did not encounter much of a problem in finding employment.

  13. Likewise, Old Sailor, my paternal grandfather and grandmother came from Germany in the 1890’s, I believe. My dad was born in the USA. My grandfather and dad were both excellent woodworkers – built barns and houses in north western Ohio.

    I read recently a good comment about the difference between the immigration of that time and what we have going on today. Then the immigrants were welcomed into this country and subsequently assimilated. Today what we have is an invasion – migrants coming without our people’s invitation. They are unskilled and most will probably remain that way. Furthermore, it has been planned for sometime by Soetoro to weaken the country. We are at a tipping point.

    “Massive mystery crater at ‘end of the world'”

    “The discovery of the crater is getting worldwide publicity, with a wide variety of comments, including:

    “I think its a meteorite crater. Myself and collegues watched a mysterious large white dot in the sky (during the day yesterday). We couldn’t work out what it was. I’m willing to bet it caused the crater. Interesting!” (Jane, Belfast, Northern Ireland)
    “It looks like a sinkhole, plain and simple.” (Jon, Tuscaloosa, Alabama)
    “Wow. What ISN’T global warming responsible for? I’m blaming my hemorrhoids on it. (Elmer Evans, Anaheim, California)
    “Why couldn’t this have occurred under the White House? Oh man …what terrible luck!” (Power Engineer, Houston, Texas)”

  15. the Tranny speaks up for the illegals:

    On July 10, 2014, First Lady Michelle Obama spoke at the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) Unity Luncheon at the New York Hilton Midtown hotel in New York City. What she said went far beyond the duties of First Lady. She actually encouraged more illegal immigration. “We cannot afford to wait on Congress to lift up our next generation,” she said.” Then she added, “We can’t afford to wait on anybody when it comes to our kids’ futures. Your grandparents and parents didn’t wait for opportunity to come to them, no, they packed up their families and moved to this country for a better life.” She forgot to mention that the families she’s referring to are illegal aliens.

    When was the last time a First Lady encouraged anyone to violate federal law? She also went on to remind her fellow Democrats, “Make no mistake about it,” the First Lady said, “we have to keep on fighting as hard as we can on immigration, and as my husband said, we are going to do whatever administrative action it takes to fix this broken system.”

    That isn’t a meteor, or sinkhole….it’s the


  18. ARE YOU READY! for what is more than likely coming to your neighborhood …..SOON?
    The unwashed ,stinking assed black PUNK gangs,have sworn to kill MORE cops, and I seriously doubt that they will discriminate where they do it . Cops will become a target of opportunity, just as are white citizens who are sitting in their homes watching TV,or reading. It will make no difference. They will either kick the door down,or shoot through the door when they see somebody begin to open it. You can combat this by just taking a little peek out a nearby window. If you see somebody you do not know,or you believe might be hostile, move away from the door quickly, and quietly. Then dial 911. Another way to combat the door kick in,is to keep a loaded 12 gauge with an 18.5 inch barrrel handy, which is loaded with at least 3 rounds of number 00 Express buckshot. Many of the older shotguns will accomodate 5 rounds of either HIGH or low brass. Make sure that the shotgun will chamber HIGH brass rounds (express), or you can by a shotgun that will accomodate MAGNUM rounds. If anybody begins kicking in your door and you already have your weapon in hand be sure to chamber a round,then slide the safety off. If the door kicking causes enough damage to allow the agressor to walk through at that point you are free to BLOW HIM AWAY, and use as many rounds as necessary to put him down for the count. Just be sure that he is NO LONGER A THREAT to you or anybody else. The question is “DO YOU HAVE THE INTESTINAL FORTITUDE TO PUT HOLES IN YOUR POTENTIAL ATTACKER? NEVER ALLOW SUCH A PERSON TO BEGIN TALKING TO YOU AND MOVING TOWARD YOU. HE IS SIMPLY TRYING TO GET WITHIN REACH OF YOU.,YOU MUST FIRE THE WEAPON AT HIM BEFORE HE CAN GET TO YOU. THE SIMPLE FACT THAT HE IS INSIDE OF YOUR HOME IS ENOUGH TO JUSTIFY LETHAL FORCE. ONCE HE IS INSIDE HE WILL TRY TO EITHER ATTACK YOU OR SOMEHOW GET THE WEAPON AWAY FROM YOU. AGAIN DO NOT ALLOW HIM TO MOVE EVEN ONE INCH TOWARD YOU.YOU MUST BE READY TO KILL HIM IF HE TRIES TO ATTACK.IF YOU HESITATE IT COULD WELL BE YOUR LAST HESITATION……….EVER! YOU MUST HAVE THE COURAGE TO FIRE AT, AND KILL HIM IF HE REFUSES TO LEAVE. YOU MAY CHALLENGE HIM TO LEAVE IF YOU WISH,BUT IF HE REFUSES YOU ARE OUT OF OPTIONS. PRACTICE ,AND REHEARSE VARIOUS REACTIONS TO SUCH SCENARIOS.
    OR HAVE AN OFF DUTY OFFICER SHOW YOU HOW TO REACT. If the intruder is between you and a safe escape, you are also out of options. Just be ready because people who lose their lives are NOT READY. Many off duty officers will sometimes help people prepare for the handling of a home invasion. As I stated if you have a clear avenue of escape, by all means put as much distance between him and you as possible, but be sure to get a 911 in early on. Above all else do NOT run into a room which has no windows,or an exterior door, you will be TRAPPED. If you run to a room with windows break out a window and get out of the house,or building, quickly. then if you can…… run to a neighbor’s house. In some counties the Sheriff’s departments sometimes sponsor training sessions for those who live alone,regarding home invasion. All I can say is that if one of the stinking bastards gets into my home he will either have about 10 lbs of lead added to his body,which will resemble a sieve, but If I use my Super 70 on him then there will be a 1/2 inch diameter hole where the shot entered,but there will be a hole big enough to stick your head in where the slug exited. My Super 70 is a souped up Model 70 Winchester which was special built by Winchester as a big game rifle. (.458 Winchester)

  19. RMINNC………
    You know……I have been praying that a few of the DC lunatics will fall into an open manhole and disappear forever……do you suppose that I was heard, but God decided to make it a huge hole in the ground. Much of the time these sinkholes come about beacuse there was an empty aquafer directly under them,which finally collapsed inward upon itself. Nothing in nature lasts forever. If you happen to live close to where oil fracking is going on such holes might open up as well. In Florida it is a different case. Nearly all of the state is ontop of aging subterranean coral. As the coral deteriorates,or for whatever reason is displaced… sinkholes open up from above.

  20. BTW……….
    ………it is also now abundantly clear that female blacks are also demanding the blood of cops. That is fine,…..when they try to extract the blood it will be their own blood which will be extracted. Obviously such people still have not learned anything except HATE.

  21. Regarding BERGDAHL……
    and now a four star general is also demanding the Courts martial of Bergdahl. I have read that he is planning to leave the Army. I am praying that he will leave the Army with a DISHONORABLE DISCHARGE in hand. In time of war he could have even lost his citizenship. People who earned UDDs were once also candidates for citizenship revocation. A UD is an UNDESIREABLE discharge. a BCD is a BAD CONDUCT discharge. There is also a general discharge which is sometimes used, and is usually given under honorable conditions.Then there is the Section 8 discharge, it is the level of discharge which is most commonly used to dismiss undesireables (homosexuals)etc.

    “Tony Brenton, former British ambassador to Russia, said suspicion for bringing down the airliner would almost certainly fall on the Ukrainian separatists. He said the rebels had already brought down two Ukrainian government jets.

    “The rebels have been supplied with relatively sophisticated equipment, nobody is admitting from where but almost certainly from Russia,” he told the BBC. “They have shot down low-flying military aircraft, but to shot down a high-flying civilian aircraft is a step up in their technology at their disposal.”

    Emergency officials on site reported body parts were scattered as far as 15 kilometres away from the crash site, according to a tweet from Reuters.

    Ukraine’s president says his country’s armed forces did not shoot at any airborne targets.”

    Text of Blagojevich appeal addendum from July 16, 2014.

    “In McCutcheon v. Federal Election Com’n, 134 S. Ct. 1434 (2014), the Court struck down a law restricting aggregate limits on political (campaign) contributions. First, the Court noted that political contributions are protected speech under the First Amendment. McCutcheon, 134 S. Ct. at 1444, 1448. To restrict protected speech, the government must have a compelling interest. Id., at 1444. The government does have a compelling interest in “preventing quid pro quo corruption or its appearance …..” Id., at 1445.

    The McCutcheon Court further explained that the government’s interest “in preventing the appearance of corruption is equally confined to the appearance of quid pro quo corruption, the Government may not seek to limit the appearance of mere influence or access.” Id., at 1451 (citation omitted). “The line between quid pro quo corruption and general influence may seem vague at times, but the distinction must be respected in order to safeguard basic First Amendment rights. In addition, [i]n drawing that line, the First Amendment requires us to err on the side of protecting political speech rather than suppressing it.” Id., 1451 (citations and internal quotation marks omitted).

    Blagojevich’s conviction is based in large part on his attempts to solicit campaign contributions. In this appeal, he argues that the lower court’s instructions to the jury on this issue “omitted the quid pro quo requirement that the government prove that Blagojevich’s requests for campaign contributions were made in return for an ‘explicit promise or undertaking’ to perform or not perform an official act.” Def. Brief, p.50. Instead, Blagojevich’s jury was told to convict on the lower standard that he attempted to obtain a campaign contribution “knowing or believing that it would be given to him in return for the taking, withholding, or other influencing of specific official action.” Def. Brief, at p. 51.

    The McCutcheon decision thus supports Blagojevich’s position that, where a criminal prosecution is based upon attempts to solicit campaign contributions, the government must prove a quid pro quo or explicit promise.”

  25. You know that Zero will cover for his bud, Putin, and continue to be “flexible” by obfuscating and claiming that there are ongoing reports about who shot down what coming in (and will continue to come in ad infinitum)! They probably made the deal on that phone call. Putin is putting these killer weapons in the hands of dumb thugs who don’t know where the directions are….and will do the same, and is doing the same, with Iran thugs who will be using nuclear weapons instead. Scariest world ever with inmates taking over the their territorial asylums just about everywhere. Meanwhile our own military is reducing….on orders from “the one”.

    11 Facts that Show We Live in a Country Run By Idiots

    The following list has been attributed to comedian Jeff Foxworthy. Snopes says Foxworthy is not the author.

    The original compiler is a man named Fritz Edmunds.

    1. If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally, you live in a country run by idiots.

    2. If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion, you live in a country run by idiots.

    3. If you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor or check out a library book, but not to vote on who runs the government, you live in a country run by idiots.

    4. If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines with more than ten rounds, but gives 20 F-16 fighter jets to the crazy leaders in Egypt, you live in a country run by idiots.

    5. If, in the largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not a 24-ounce soda because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat, you live in a country run by idiots.

    6. If an 80-year-old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a woman in a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched, you live in a country run by idiots.

    7. If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more, you live in a country run by idiots.

    America designed by geniuses8. If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of grade school for saying his teacher’s “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable, you live in a country run by idiots.

    9. If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government intrusion, while not working is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing and free cell phones, you live in a country run by idiots.

    10. If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to incentivize NOT working, with 99 weeks of unemployment checks and no requirement to prove they applied but can’t find work, you live in a country run by idiots.

    11. If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more “safe” according to the government, you live in a country run by idiots.

    If you are offended by this article, you probably voted for the idiots who are running our country into the ground.

    Now we see what MANPADS can do, many were supplied by the usurper to rebels in Libya and Syria. That plane was at 33,000 feet altitude, no plane anywhere on this planet is safe anymore. Terrorists have the missiles now, and they shoot at anything they see, and then stand around shouting Allah u akbar for twenty minutes. Thanks, usurper!

  29. I believe that it was reported that the only parish whose individual parishioners agreed to take in some of the illegals took in 25….big dent. And other churches reporting they had kept some overnight and then they went off to sights unknown. They aren’t going to stick around anywhere where they can be tracked. More than likely you’ll see hispanic conclaves receiving the money for keeping their own where they know the “rules” and are street smart….besides, they can communicate.

    The shooting down of an airliner is an act that should be punishable by PUBLIC HANGING,with a horribly painful and lengthy duration. When the person responsible for this is found (HA HA) he should be made to suffer an extremely agonising death. People should be allowed to hear his screams,and watch him slowly die,during which they can file past him and SPIT on him. Why the hell do the SLIME have to take out a DEFENSELESS airliner. This lends credence to my belief that the perpetrators are total psychopaths. They murder for pleasure…..only a sick,twisted SON OF A BASTARD,does that.
    The news of the airliner being shot down has sickened me. It was totally uncalled for,or justified. I believe that the entire episode may have been caught by our satellite cameras. When it is analysed I think the experts will be able to see the missile hit the airliner,and plot both the direction,and geographical point of origin.

    I urge all Americans – regardless of party affiliation, faith or absence thereof – to face this challenge to our identity: How is it possible that Barack Obama can evade impeachment proceedings if We the People are meaningfully to remain Americans?


    No Obama impeachment? Who are we?

    Nat Hentoff: ‘This is for the sake of our very identity as Americans’

    I was astonished and angered to read last week that the American Civil Liberties Union gathered “a coalition of 45 civil rights, human rights, privacy rights and faith-based organizations (and) sent a letter to President Obama asking for ‘a full public accounting of … practices’” related to the NSA’s spying on five leading American Muslims.

    Sure, it’s a legitimate complaint, so why am I angry? Because instead of requesting this “full public accounting,” the ACLU should be organizing with other presumed guardians of our individual constitutional liberties to demand that impeachment proceedings begin against Obama, the most flagrant presidential violator of the Constitution in our history.

    ……then Soetoro goes on to New York,laughing all the way. Has anybody given any thought to the possibility that the airliner might have been taken out on Soetoro’s orders to divert attention away from what is happening to America? It would seem that if the BASTARD can order a Hawaian airplane to be crashed,and one person dies,then it seems reasonable that he could also order an airliner to be brought down wherein nearly 300 die. It is sort of like a JOKE to Soetoro. Life doesn’t mean a damn thing to him. His cold callous behavior tells me that he was and still is capable of murdering anyone without remorse. I believe that he might have murdered both his own mother,as well as his maternal grandmother. All of this tells me that he is also a PSYCHOPATH.

    Some say the new rule could lead to “racial quotas” and will be exploited by HUD to aggressively absorb the nation’s swelling population of illegal immigrants into communities that are trying to keep them out.


    National Day Of Protesting Against Immigration Reform/Amnesty & Border Surge

    A poll confirms that Americans overwhelmingly agree that corruption is exploding under Barack Obama’s criminal administration.

    He’s turned the IRS into a political weapon, has targeted journalists who question him, increased illegal spying, and is violating nearly every one of the Bill of Rights.

    A new Gallup poll shows that the number of Americans who perceive that their government is corrupt has reached an all time high, and has risen by 20% over the past seven years, according to IJReview.

    For 79% of Americans, the misconduct they see in TV shows like House of Cards is not too far off from how they perceive their government. Since 2006, the percentage of Americans who believe that corruption in U.S. government is widespread has jumped 20%.

    Pair that with the abominably low congressional approval rating, and it’s plain to see that Americans are close to calling it quits with our federal government.

    Obviously, corruption didn’t start under the Obama administration, but they seem to have taken it to a whole new level, even becoming blatant and unapologetic about it.
